Our seminar scope suddenly change from 100 to about 350 Participants overnight. The change from cozy venue to a bigger unequipped space and unavoidable loss of ambience were among other things the consequences that we had to put up with. The challenges of getting the unending participants comfortable. Sorting our logistics while still making sure the job is done with no excuse whatsoever will definitely make anyone sweat.
In this pics our Chief convener sweated it out while doing his thing during the March edition of veterans wives and widows sensitization and advocacy for empowerment at Odogbo barrack, Ibadan. In his word…..’he said if we are sweating for them it worth it, they and their husbands have and are paying the price daily with their patriotic services’. We call it passion; you call transformative leadership.
Comparatively, the condition under which we had our seminar is not any different from what happen when veterans orphans and widows suddenly lost their husbands and breadwinner. The sudden change in family structure , loss order, companion and means of livelihood is affected are immediate consequences. This is why there must be an inclusive palliative to absorbed the shock caused by sudden loss of loved most especially for the immediate defendants of the deceased.
